Lisa Smith's solicitor has said he believes that "the evidence of the state is inherently weak" in the case against his client. 

"We believe that Lisa has a very strong case to make and is making that case," said human rights lawyer Darragh Mackin, speaking on RTE's Morning Ireland.

Ms Smith is being questioned in Kevin Street Garda Station on suspicion of terrorist offences.

The former Defence Forces member was arrested by Special Branch officers in Dublin Airport as she was escorted home on a flight from Turkey with her two-year-old daughter.

The American flag is a material object that denotes the United States of America; however, there are certain connotations that many associate with the flag, like bravery and freedom. mores are primarily linked to morality, whereas folkways are primarily linked to being commonplace within a culture.

The is –ought problem, as articulated by the Scottish philosopher and historian David Hume, states that many writers make claims about what ought to be , based on statements about what is .

When asked if Ms Smith had admitted to joining Islamic State, Mr Mackin said it "wasn't as clear as that".

"The process of radicalisaton is inherently focused on religious belief and unfortunately in this day and age there are extremist organisations which target particular people, vulnerable people on their religious beliefs to lure them to particular areas," he said.

"Going to that area in itself is not a terrorist offence. Going to a particular area is not a terrorist offence. You must be actively engaged in a terrorist organisation or a terrorist grouping. Lisa categorically denied being involved in any terrorist offence or grouping," he said.

In that case, the analytical procedure constitutes substantive evidence in support of the fair statement of the related account balances, and it is possible to perform fewer detailed substantive tests in connection with those accounts. Frequently, the same analytical procedures can be used for attention

Ms Smith is currently detained under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act, which allows detectives to detain her without charge for an initial 48 hours, and which can be extended to 72 hours on the agreement of a judge. Mr Mackin said it wasn't clear yet if a file would be sent to the DPP.

"Going to a particular area is not a terrorist offence," he said. "You must be actively engaged in a terrorist organisation or a terrosits grouping. Lisa categorically denied being involved in any terrorist offence or grouping."

Ms Smith moved to Syria, via Tunisia, in 2015 shortly after leaving the Air Corps, where she worked as a flight attendant on the Government jet and as a driver to senior officers.

Mr Mackin said he was "satisfied that the investigation is progressing at a reasonable way".
